I reflected upon various dialogue in this film this evening. All from the 2004 film , The Libertine :

Rochester : “Mrs. Barry, you must acquire the trick of ignoring those who do not like you. In my experience, those who do not like you fall into two categories: The stupid and the envious. The stupid will like you in five years, the envious, never.” …………………

Rochester: “I wish to be moved. I cannot feel in life. I must have others do it for me in theater. ” ………………… Rochester : “And yet you do not draw the moral of the incident.” Billy Downs: “Which is?” Rochester: “That any experiment of interest in life will be carried out at your own expense. Mark it well. ” ……………………. Rochester : ” So here he lies at the last. The deathbed convert. The pious debauchee. Could not dance a half measure, could I? Give me wine, I drain the dregs and toss the empty bottle at the world. Show me our Lord Jesus in agony and I mount the cross and steal his nails for my own palms. There I go, shuffling from the world. My dribble fresh upon the bible. I look upon a pinhead and I see angels dancing. Well? Do you like me now? Do you like me now? Do you like me now? Do you like me… now?” ………………………….

This film is dedicated to the memory of Mary Selway, Marlon Brando , and Hunter S Thompson.
